Can anybody recomend a Microsoft Word Alternative?

I can't really afford Microsoft word, even the student addition

I am not happy with Open Office because it is very slow to open. (

Can anyone recommend free software that I could use?

The best alternative (at least free) is the Open Office.

I have Office 2003 Professional and the latest Open Office. The Open Office programs open faster than MS Office on my Win 7 64 bit system.

Open office is much faster than MS Office. I suggest you to use it.
